[ARCHIVED] Belair Remembers Rochambeau's March

Step back to 1781 as Belair Mansion commemorates General Rochambeau's march past Belair, on the way to Yorktown, to send the British packing and guarantee an American victory.  Join the members of the First Maryland Regiment and the Maryland Loyalist Battalion as they spin stories of camp life, drill, and maybe even engage in a skirmish (weather permitting!)   Visit with the colonial printer and the dress maker, or stitch with the ladies in their sewing circle.

As a special addition this  year, Owen Lourie, from the Md. State Archives will give a talk on the Maryland 400 - revolutionary troops from Maryland who fought and died valiantly in New York City.

The event is free, no reservations.  Noon to 4 p.m. Belair Mansion, 12207 Tulip Grove Drive   301-809-3089
